Vice President Biden coming to Vegas Nov. 1; comes on heels of Clinton get-out-the-vote stop


LAS VEGAS — Vice President Joe Biden is planning to come to Las Vegas this weekend to attend a political event.

Officials from Biden's office say the vice president will be in town Saturday. No further details about the event were released Wednesday.

Biden came to Las Vegas less than a month ago. He used a lunch stop at a Mexican restaurant to make a pitch for raising the minimum wage nationally to $10.10 per hour.

He's the second high-profile politician to visit Nevada this week. President Bill Clinton headlined a get-out-the-vote rally Tuesday at the Springs Preserve nature park and historical complex.

Democrats are lagging far behind Republicans in turnout during the early voting period that ends Friday. The lopsided numbers could spell danger for Democrats whose seats were recently considered safe.
